Why Choose Us

The city of Charlotte sits on one of the major freight corridors in the United States, which means we experience a high volume of trucking traffic. With this business comes risks for drivers, and when those risks result in injury, truckers need a lawyer who understands their job and who they can rely on to take care of their problems.

Attorney Bob Bollinger is a board-certified specialist in workers’ compensation law. This means that Bob is one of a small group of workers’ compensation attorneys with the special training, experience, and knowledge to be recognized by the North Carolina State Bar as a true “specialist” in this complicated area. Bob Bollinger proves this by providing:

  • Judgment-free representation. Even if you are concerned that you’ve already made mistakes in handling your case—like offering a recorded statement to an insurance company or admitting blame for an accident—we can help. Bob Bollinger and his team aren’t interested in dwelling on past missteps. We are here to help you fix problems and move forward successfully.
  • Practical, useful advice. Often, our clients have never been involved in a workers’ compensation claim, and they aren’t entirely sure what to do. We will help you learn more about the system and offer realistic advice about the process and the timeline. Additionally, we’ll make sure that your claim includes ALL the details that will help you be successful, even those you may not even realize are important.
  • Commitment to the entire process. One major tool that injured workers can use is the ability to go to court to fight for their benefits. Bob Bollinger believes in using that tool whenever necessary. He has litigated well over 100 cases with the North Carolina Industrial Commission during the past few years, and he will go to court for you, too, if the insurance company is not paying or providing what it should.

Our North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Attorney Helps Injured Truck Drivers

Driving a commercial truck is one of the most dangerous jobs in the U.S., according to the national Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Occupational Outlook Handbook, which finds that truck drivers experience one of the highest rates of injury and illness of all occupations. Many of these injuries are sustained on the road in traffic accidents, despite drivers’ best efforts at safety. And even outside of traffic incidents, truck drivers face unique risks. We have represented drivers who have been injured handling freight and hand trucks, falling off while covering a load, moving a tandem dolly, cranking down landing gear, slipping off of a wet catwalk, and many other accidents other than crashes. With such compelling evidence of the dangers posed to truck drivers and other similar workers, it would seem that obtaining work injury benefits would be a smooth, easy process. Unfortunately, around the country and right here in North Carolina, that is simply not the case. That is why you may need the help of an experienced truck driver workers’ compensation attorney.

Bollinger Law GroupAt the Bollinger Law Firm, we understand the challenges that truck drivers face after an injury. Whether you are fearful of even beginning a claim, your employer is ignoring your injury, or you’ve received inadequate medical services, we can help. Injured workers have rights to medical care and wage loss compensation, and, as a Board-Certified Specialist in Workers’ Compensation Law, attorney Bob Bollinger is an experienced, tenacious advocate for those rights. Even if you aren’t sure your injury is severe enough to warrant benefits or if you are worried you’ve already made mistakes in the process, we can help you understand your rights and work to help you obtain the best outcome possible.

Obtaining medical care and wage replacement payments through the workers’ compensation system can be frustrating and confusing. Many people feel overwhelmed facing the process while also dealing with their injuries. Those who do file on their own are often unfairly denied the benefits they should receive. For truck drivers, these benefits can be especially important, as they often sustain serious injuries to their neck, back, shoulders, and knees that can require significant time away from work and ongoing medical treatment.

If you or someone you love has suffered an injury at work, you do not have to go it alone. We know it can be difficult to take that first step and make the call to an attorney, but we understand what you are experiencing. We make it easy to talk to a lawyer at no charge and learn about workers’ compensation law and processes.
